1. This makes sense to me.
I have a conviction that I was allowed to plead down to a misdemeanor but it still follows me around. I was naive during the traffic stop and gave permission for a search after the cop threatened me with his dog.

Anyway if I had insisted on a jury trial, I might have at least got a better plea offer.

But I think this approach, if taken by all "suspects," will scare the shit out of them.
